Market abuse can be divided between insider dealing and market manipulation. Assessing whether information is “inside” can be quite complicated and needs to be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Similarly, market manipulation is difficult to define, but there are behaviours that are consistently described as being considered market manipulation. If you are unclear whether information is inside information, you should consult your compliance officer or legal team.
Key learning objectives:
Describe market abuse, inside information, and market manipulation
